Bertram 50 Convertible

This Bertram is one of, if not THE nicest, 50s out there and is truly capable of long-range fishing adventures.

This is a beautiful boat that commands attention and respect both at and away from the dock. Youll be happy you viewed this well-maintained and equipped sport fishing yacht.

I am proud to represent this tastefully refurbished Bertram that was a FRESHWATER boat until May 2012. All fishing items including a Rybovich fighting chair and Pipewelders Outriggers were added since then and the boat is in excellent shape. Since November 2013, the owner has redone the interior including carpets, couches, and bedspreads, as well as new light fixtures, wall coverings, coaming pads and cushions! Every bit of work has been itemized and kept in detailed logs. Boat also includes the original manuals so you get a complete history. New canvas, coaming bolsters, battery chargers, AC compressors, interior paint were completed in June 2014.

Fresh bottom paint in 2015 with new zincs and the bottom is kept scrubbed clean. Every pump, macerator, and thru-hull was inspected and/or replaced in December 2013. New batteries in December 2013. Port engine was overhauled in December 2013. The Starboard engine was overhauled in Summer 2014. Engines have around 200 hours and the boat itself only has around 1600 hours of use. Twin ONAN 8kw generators with around 1000 hours per provide plenty of power away from the dock. The owner of this boat was not afraid to spend money to keep it pristine.

Electronics include a Garmin 7212 networked to 5212 chartplotter with a Garmin 72 Mile Open Array and the ability to watch Satellite TV and engine room cameras on the bridge!

The boat just received a full top and bottom compound, touched up bottom paint, NEW bridge enclosure, one new AC unit and controller, and waxed outriggers in March 2016.

From PowerBoat Guide:

A beautifully styled boat whose muscular profile will probably never be dated, the Bertram 50 Convertible is considered by many to represent the state of the art in production 50-foot sport- fishermen. Built on a rugged deep-V hull with cored hullsides and a relatively wide beam, her superb seakeeping and handling qualities are almost legendary. Initially offered in a three- stateroom layout with the galley up, a spacious two-stateroom, galley-down interior with an enormous salon became available in 1988. A transom door and tackle center were standard in the cockpit, and a wrap- around helm console eliminates the need for an overhead electronics box. A good performer, 735hp 8V92 diesels will cruise at 24 knots (27 knots top) with a range of over 400 miles.

If you are in the market for a boat that can take you miles offshore tomorrow in comfort and class, do yourself a favor and take a look at this 50 Bertram. The hull still shines like new, and the updated huge stereo will entertain you all the way to the fishing grounds.
